Mississippi State University lists centipedegrass and bermudagrass as being two species of turfgrass that require the least amount of seed for lawn coverage. This makes these varieties a better option to plant over Carpetgrass, Kentucky bluegrass, Creeping fescue and tall fescue, which grow well in Mississippi but are more costly to plant.
